Time for a meme folks. It's been too long. I was wondering what to do for my post this morning. Then while I was doing my morning perusal of my favorite bloggers I came across this one from Dr. Spo. It's all about reading which is me.
Fasten your seat belts folks, here goes:
1. Describe your favorite place to cozy-up with a good book.
That would be my bed folks. I always read before I go to bed. If I'm into a really good book, I'll take the opportunity during the day to lie in my bed and read a few pages.
2. What do you read when you're on the toilet?
Usually a paperback. I rarely read a hard cover book when I'm on the hopper. Don't want to take the chance it's going to do in the "drink" when I flush the toilet.
3. Do you ready when taking a bath?
Hardly, I don't take baths. I take showers.
4. If you can, do you read when at the gym?
Gym? What's a gym?
5. Do you still read newspaper and or magazines?
I glance at the newspapers at work for the headlines and if I'm interested in reading the full story, I'll bring it up on the computer. The only magazines I read are the trashy gossip rags like the National Enquirer ("inquiring minds wants to know") and the Globe. I need to read the latest about President Obama's homosexual encounters and which straight women he's having affairs with. When are the gossip rags going to understand Obama can't be a womanizer and gay at the same time? Just asking.
6. What are your favorite genres to read?
Biographies, preferably celebrity biographies. Holocaust memoirs and most other non-fiction. I do not like fiction. Real life is always more interesting than made up stories from self-important authors.
7. If you start a book, do you finish it no matter what?
Almost always unless it is really God awful which is rare for the books I choose to read.
8. Did your parents read to you when you were growing up?
Never. NEVER. I wish they had. But I have a friend who has volunteered to read to me now in my old age dotage. I'll take it. Better late than never.
9. Have you read to your kid/nephew/nieces?
Never and I don't want to. Are you kidding? Why would I do that? They're afraid of me.
10. How do you feel about reading books versus using electronic devices? Have you feelings evolved from one or two years ago?
No, I like reading a book, not a tablet. Call me old fashion but I like the feel of a book. I have read on electronic devices in a pinch but I prefer a hardcover or large paperback book.
When was the last time you looked at or read an adult magazine to satisfy yourself? When was the last time you even saw one?
NEVER. Reading magazines or pulp sex books doesn't "do it" for me. I prefer to download videos from the Internet. That "works" for me. Pictures or lurid descriptions don't. Again, color me old fashion. Of course the "real deal" is even better my options for that scenario is very limited to almost nil at my advanced years.
